5 Questions About Me

I'm 'playing along' with a blogger 5 Question get-to-know you. I have no problem writing anything and everything about Conneaut Lake, but writing about myself is a little more difficult. Here it goes...
1. What makes you happy?
Being in Conneaut Lake with my family (of course)!
2. Which talent would you most like to have? 
Singing and dancing. I have zero talent in either.
3. Which words or phrases do you overuse most?
'Let it go'. Said to my husband or kids when they fret over something not worth fretting about.
4. What is your favorite movie, book or both?
I love A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (the book). The story is so timeless.
5. If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat where might it be? 
Hum, I have to say, life's pretty good here at the lake.  But, if I had to choose, I'd like to go to the Adirondacks or the Catskills. I've never been to either, but both sound wonderful The Catskills make me think of Dirty Dancing, which has to be one of my favorite movies.

And now, a rare picture of me! I'm usually the one behind the camera. Thanks for reading!

Great picture. Getting out from behind the lens is always scary. I loved the Adirondacks when we were there a number of years ago.
